New high definition fibre tracking reveals damage caused by traumatic brain injury

A powerful new imaging technique called High Definition Fibre Tracking (HDFT) will allow doctors to clearly see for the first time neural connections broken by traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other neurological disorders, much like X-rays show a fractured bone, according to researchers from the University of Pittsburgh.

In the report, the researchers describe the case of a 32-year-old man who wasn
